After Moose Wala’s father wrote to him requesting an investigation by the CBI, NIA, or a sitting judge of the Punjab and Haryana high court, Punjab chief minister Bhagwant Mann, who has come under fire following the shocking, daylight murder of singer-turned-political leader Sidhu Moose, has agreed to a judicial probe into the case.

Bhagwant Mann has ruled that the killing shall be investigated by a sitting high court judge. The authorities will also look into why Moose Wala’s security was reduced. The murder of Moose Wala has previously been investigated by a Special Investigation Team.

A senior official confirmed to sources that the Punjab Police DGP who indicated on Sunday that the assassination of Sidhu Moose Wala was the result of a gang feud has been asked to explain his statement.
